Doubles defeat for Ana and Maria

Ana and Maria Kirilenko lost their J&S Cup semi-final against third seeds Elena Likhovtseva and Anastasia Myskina.

The teenagers went down 6-3, 6-4 to the experienced Russian pair.

The defeat marks the end of Ana's Warsaw campaign. Despite a disappointing loss to Anna Chakvetadze, it has been a very positive tournament for Ana.

In singles and doubles she won a total of four matches, including two stunning victories: against erstwhile nemesis Patty Schnyder, and versus top seeds Martina Navratilova and Liezel Huber.

Ana's next event is the Qatar Telecom German Open, which begins in Berlin on Monday.
